I want this app
Download from AppStore

For all the times you and your friends want to start something but need to figure out who goes first. The typical method is guessing a number someone thinks up from a range of numbers, but how is that fair if that person is playing too? And what if that person has bias toward someone and thinks of the number after everyone has guessed? Well now there's an app for that.

This app allows you to select a range of numbers you want to choose from (say 1 to 100) and allows for the input of guesses for 1 to 6 people. After everyone has guessed, the app generates a random number in that range and highlights in green the guess that is the closest! For each guess, there is also a result label that displays the number that he or she was off from the correct number.

For added fun, this is also set up to be a game itself. The app keeps score in two ways: a number in the lower-left-hand corner of each player's display shows the number of rounds won. The player who has the most wins has his or her wins highlighted in red. Also, in the bottom-right- hand corner of each player's display is the total score. After each round of guesses, the player that is the closest has the sum of the other players' errors added to his or her total score. The player with the highest total score after a round has his or her total score highlighted in blue.

The random number generator can also be used by itself for simply generating a number from a range of numbers. Useful for selecting someone to win a door prize!

In case you need it, there's a set of help screens included with the app that explain all of the features in detail for easy reference.
